Personal Statement

Learning an instrument is an incredibly rewarding experience and although one has to work hard and be dedicated, music should essentially be fun. It also allows you express your own personality and I put great empthasis of self-expression in my lessons. A lot of students want to learn songs but other musicians which is fine, but there must be a point where you must no longer sound like others, and sound simply like yourself. Through the study of a variety of styles, genres and theoretical disscusiions i hope to achieve this.
